To celebrate the
Fourth of July,
closes Main Street (Main Street! And a block north and south on Broad Street,
the main road through town) to vehicular traffic for an all-day festival.
There were plenty of artists,
games and rides to keep the thousands that showed up busy.
Even the rain didn't discourage anyone from slowly meandering about
(the rain just made the meandering more frantic at first,
then slowed it down a bit).
By the time of the fireworks show,
9:30 PM at Brevard College,
Main Street had been opened,
but a quarter mile segment of Broad Street,
from the Transylvania Courthouse
north towards the campus
(the Courthouse is at the top of a hill)
had been closed off to allow people a good view of the fireworks show.

After the show,
it was quieter in Brevard than our own neighborhood.
I don't know if that's because of stricter enforcement of fireworks restrictions,
or those setting off The Good Stuff™ just live further away from town.
I'm guessing the latter.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
